RTR Getaway | Cottonwood Classic
Whether you’re a passionate leaf peeper, dedicated big mountain rider, or simply seeking a great way to spend a fall weekend in Colorado, the first annual RTR Getaway Cottonwood Classic has something for you.
Starting and finishing in Crested Butte, this 194-mile, three-day semi-supported tour makes a clockwise loop around the heart of Colorado’s central Rockies. Along the way you’ll climb up and over some of the state’s most iconic climbs, including the newly paved Cottonwood Pass, Monarch Pass, and Ohio Pass. Total uphill pedaling for this long weekend, October 1-3, 2021, is just a shade under 13,400 feet, all of it above 7,000 feet, including the tour’s highpoint of 12,126 feet atop Cottonwood Pass.
